Dave:

I've read good things about the bass from the ML-TL, and that's what's missing from the BK10. Without using the "bass" control on my Panasonic receiver, the BK10 sounds nasal and honky. I'm trying to avoid having to use a subwoofer.

If you were to build the "Virtual Fostex," would you use the FE206e, or the FE207e? Looks like a box made from six pieces that I could have cut by a local shop.

Also, I was thinking about getting a Charlize amp from diyparadise.com. Does that amp have enough power for the MK ML TL? It looks from the diagram on Martin King's website like the BSC circuit has the + tied with the -, which I thought was a no-no with a Tripath-based amp.

Yes, I will probably end up electrocuting myself, but my doctor said I need a hobby.

Me... i'd be using 2 FE207e per box (cross-section & port x 2 as well). No BSC required, 2x the radiating area, 4 ohm impedance (which the SI prefers), at least 95 dB efficiency....

have you tried these drives as "regular" home audio drivers? BTW where do you get these drivers in India. The Fostex dealer in Mumbai (Narians) does not carry them.

hello navin

my friend in the usa ordered them from madisound and brought them in his personal baggage when he came to india.

as it was for my studio/work i didn't mind caughing up the extra dough for the fx120's but for a personal listening system i just put together alegria audio's fq 127 (ml-tqwt?/fe127e) and i can only say that the ultra smooth response of the fx-120 + the bass response of the alegria design would be a great combination.

if you are in chennai sometime i'd be happy to demo them for you. (93810-46695)

cheers

jai shankar.

I was considering the FX120 or the FE108 (same price) in a thin tall cabinet (not sure of the bass loading yet) to complement an EL84 amp, I would assume that the FX120 (being larger) would offer better bass but the 108 would offer a nicer treble.

Since the system will be in my son's room it will be exposed to wide variety of music (from dance and disco to jazz and rock).

Thanks for the offer will keep it in mind if I am ever in chennai.

Looks a lot like the head unit from a set of KEF 105s...

Here are a couple of the latest experiments... both Fostex FE126e.

1st pic has the Fostex recommended "horn-like" TL/BR hybrid in front of a set of RonHorn A126.

And the RonHorns by themselves. These are about a metre high.
